We had lunch here and it was very good. The chips and salsa were fresh and delicious. The food came out very fast and was very good. The guacamole was fresh and delicious as well. The menu had options for everyone which was nice. I...will be going back to this place for sure.More

Chips and salsa is habit forming. Orders are are filled very quickly and warm. We have always had great service and the prices are very fair. Only issue is the noise level is very high, don’t plan on having a nice quiet conversation but do...plan on having a good meal.More

Great service, pleasant atmosphere. Lunch menu has good amount of choices. Priced very fairly. Quantity and quality of food was excellent. The chips and salsa brought after we sat down must have just been made, tasted so fresh.

Excellent food and wonderful service! The manager does a great job running this restaurant. It's always clean and food fresh and hot when you get it. Price is affordable for families, plus margaritas are so good here! Yuuum....come see what you're missing!

Our first visit 100% guarantee it will not be our last. I love Mexican food and this was the best we have eaten in the greater Kansas City, Mo. area! I rarely completely recommend a restaurant, this is the exception.

My niece and I visited this restaurant after Thanksgiving and the food was delicious and service top notch. I had the Fajitas Mix and she had the Beef Chimichanga de Pescado. We were in such a rush to dig in because the food looked and...smelled so good we forgot to take pictures so we will be coming back the week before Christmas!! Please visit this restaurant you will not be disappointed.More

My wife and I shared Fajitas for 2, specifically the combination style with shrimp, beef, and chicken. What you get is just two separate full orders, but you save $4 (I think). They do a really good job with their fajitas and provide the following...items to go along with the mix: guacamole, rice, refried beans, lettuce, pico, sour cream, and tortillas. You get plenty to eat with some to take home unless you have a big appetite. Also, they have really good salsa. This is probably my favorite mexican restaurant in the KC northland area. If you are passing by or in the area, definitely give a try.More

Our first visit to a well-loved Kearney restaurant. We arrived late in the lunch hour, and were seated promptly. The outdoor patio was a great place for lunch. Service was attentive and our orders came quickly from the kitchen. LaFuente has a well-balanced red sauce...with just the right degree of spice. I had huevos rancheros, and my wife had a combination lunch plate. Both were tasty and delicious.We'll go back for dinner soon.More

A great local business with classic Mexican food options and a few for gringos. The fajitas are a family share favorite that feeds 4 when we order extra tortillas. The cheese dip is a favorite. When's it's just hub and I, he orders Enchiladas Rancheras...and I order a grilled chicken salad with a side of pico and tortillas. Service is always quick and courteous. The LaFuente franchise appears to be related to another local franchise, El Maguey. The menu, food flavors and quality are very similar.More

We love this place! We bring family and friends for gatherings here. Extremely family-friendly. The wait staff couldn't be better and the food is excellent. I've never had a bad experience at this restaurant in all the years it was at this location and it...is previous location. Are out of town family always request at least one meal here when they're in town visiting. So many great choices and the best chips and salsa around.More
